A #christmasfail and new releases!

I had dreams.

I envisioned the gasps and comments of my children’s friends at the cafeteria table. “Wow! What a fantastic dessert?” or “Can I have the recipe?” or “You’ve got the best mom ever!”

Well, you know what they say. Pride comes before a fall.

I mean how hard can it be to melt white chocolate chips? So with a smile, I happily broke up the Winter Oreo cookies, pretzel sticks, and joyfully added in the Christmas MnMs. All I had to do was pour the melted white chocolate over the mix. Presto–dessert! No baking necessary!

It started out fine. I put the bowl in the microwave, stirred, microwaved…etc. At first, it was working. Then I noticed that it stopped melting and was crumbling. Upon research, I later learned the term for what happened is called seizing. Basically, once you reach this point, the chocolate is ruined.

I was going to give up on melting white chocolate forever, but I will try once more. Soon. In a double boiler and see if that helps. Who know that white chocolate was so complicated?

Regardless, I hope your holiday baking has been more successful than mine!

On the publishing end, a lot has been happening in the past month or so. I have three books for you all–all at 99 cents for a short time.

That’s all for now. There’s one last Holly Hart cozy coming. Most likely to be released late January or early February. And, soon in the New Year, I’ll have a cover and blurb for a new humorous cozy mystery series. (That’s all I can say for now.)

Have a Merry Christmas and a happy holiday!! Share any news or traumatic holiday cooking you may need to share! Or lie so I’ll feel better. 🙂

Christmas Eve is a night of mystery and magic, but not always in ways we expect. Things lurk in the shadows and they’re not the least bit jolly or merry. Let’s just say some presents are better left unopened.

‘Tis the season to be screaming along with our thirteen tales of holiday horrors. Ghosts. Monsters. Demons. And more! 

This Christmas, be careful what you wish for… 

I’m excited to be a part of this scary Christmas anthology!
Here’s a sample from my short story!
